AKRON, (AP):

Newborns at the Ohio hospital where LeBron James and Stephen Curry were born will get some special gifts during the NBA finals as those stars face-off.

Akron-based Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company is giving care packages to parents of children born in Akron-area hospitals through June 19.

James and Curry were born at Akron City Hospital. The stars are going against each other as James' Cleveland Cavaliers play Curry's Golden State Warriors.

Golden State won the first game Thursday in the best-of-seven series.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports that families of the newborns will receive a set of four tires, an "Akron Born" one-piece outfit and a car seat.

Summa Akron City Hospital, Cleveland Clinic Akron General and Akron Children's Hospital are participating to help deliver the packages.
